Greek airline Ellinair welcomed an additional Airbus A319 to its fleet at Thessaloniki International Airport, the airline’s main hub.
The new Airbus A319 is configured with a seating capacity for 144 passengers.
Although it has already been registered in the Greek register, the aircraft is expected to start its flights on domestic routes and to Moscow before the end of February, when the integration process to the Ellinair Air Carrier Operating Certificate is completed.
Ellinair already has an Airbus A319 in its fleet and its cooperation with Airbus confirms its absolute commitment to provide high quality services and to offer a unique travel experience to its passengers.
Ellinair President, Mr. Ioannis Mouzenidis commented on the arrival of the new aircraft:
“Growth, innovation and commitment to quality are the elements that characterize the Ellinair strategy and reflect our continuous effort to reach positive results. The addition of the new aircraft confirms our growth and our investment in the country’s tourism industry, despite the crisis period we are going through. ”
In 2016, Ellinair’s fleet is expected to comprise up to 10 aircraft, to operate flights to more than 15 different countries.
Mr. Stavros Daliakas, Ellinair Commercial Director, said:
“We are delighted to integrate the second modern Airbus 319 to our fleet. I think that it fully meets the business objectives of Ellinair, especially after the significant expansion of our destinations in Western Europe.”
